On 30 May Jose Maria Medina Navarro, Deputy Head of Cooperation of the EU Delegation to Armenia, presented funding opportunities for local/regional authorities and civil society under the EU financial instruments. The session took place within the “Public Administration Reforms at the Local and Regional Level Seminar for Experts from EaP Countries” seminar. Experts and representatives of EaP countries attended the seminar to discuss possible scenarios for improvement in this area.

Navarro presented how the European Union could support EaP countries in building capacity for good governance. One of these was the European Neighbourhood Instrument, which includes bilateral assistance, incentive-based assistance, programmes for regional development, and an inter-regional instrument. According to Navarro, the EU is determined to help EaP countries establish the main components of good governance: democracy, the rule of law, freedom, integration into the EU single market, mobility, and regional and cross-border relations.

The seminar was organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, the European External Action Service, and the European Commission, within the framework of the Eastern Partnership Panel on Public Administration Reform.
